Ina Yoko Teutenberg, one of the most successful female riders in the sport, has decided to end her career after a terrible crash earlier this season.
The Specialized-lululemon crashed happened in March during the Acht van Dwingeloo.
Ina Yoko had this to say “It’s not the way I wanted to retire from the sport, I have considered the option of racing one more season in 2014 just to be able to finish my career racing rather than due to injury, but I’ve decided it’s time now. I’m looking forward to life after racing and finding a new career.”
She has recorded over 200+ wins in her career.
